Byter, friend and colleague Vince C sent me the following collection of pics headed Memories of the Fifties.
Some of the items are American, for instance, we did not have BB guns (although as kids we did have what we called air rifles, more commonly called slug guns in that the lead pellets they fired were known as "slugs"), and some pics appear to be Brit in origin, but most are Oz based.
Also, I believe some are from the 60s, although I could be wrong.
At any rate, a lot of memories . . .
